Fabric Bulletin Board

I always seem to find out about fun annual events a bit too late. So I thought a special little bulletin board just for things I want to do next year made sense. From special events I want to attend, to clubs I want to join, to things I want to make - now I […]

Fabric greeting card

Fabric is so soft and yummy - try it in place of paper for your next handmade greeting card design. Plus you can easily iron on Joy embroidered letters to spell your sentiment like I did with hugs and kisses. Iron a piece of paper-backed fusible web interfacing (tacky side down) to a piece of […]

Felt Monogram Plaque

I love decorating my doors - these extra-large script letters really make a bold statement for the entrance to any room. Of course, a monogram plaque is perfect for a bedroom - and the texture of the embroidered letter against thick, wool felt is luxurious. I like how the white pops against my bright orange […]

Flower Power Messenger Bag

I picked up a couple plain canvas messenger bags for painting - because wearable art rocks! Working with acrylic inks and fabric paints, I started giving the front flap a little psychedelic color. By misting the canvas first with water, I could get a nice "bleed" on all my drops of ink. In some areas, […]

Making fabric grab bags for party favors is really quick and easy. Just fold and press a rectangle of fabric in half. Run a basting stitch up each side with a needle and contrasting thread. I tucked the bottom corners in to create a gusset, but you can also leave the corners flat. Position your […]

Heart Trio Valentine Card

I discovered some of the Joy letter/number sheets include little dashes, which are perfect for making faux stitches on a Valentine's Day card. I designed this cute card to fit inside a standard #10 business envelope. I cut out three hearts from some lovey-dovey conversation cardstock and inked the edges with a red marker. Then […]

Photo cube ornament

A handmade photo cube ornament makes a great gift for anyone on your list. This project is super quick and easy to create with your favorite scrapbook papers, craft glue and paper punches. I like to use smooth foam cubes (rather than wood or paper maché) because they're lightweight and easy to embellish by pressing […]
